Nigeria: CBN Governor's Cup 2012 Holds Nov 17

This year's edition of the annual Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor's Cup will hold November 17 and 18 at the Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) Golf and Country Club Abuja.

The annual golf fiesta, which is in its sixth edition, according to CBN's Director Corporate Communication Ugo A. Okoroafor, will attract 400 golfers from within and outside Abuja.

Okoroafor, who was speaking at a media briefing to herald the tournament, said there are plans to ensure that the yearly event becomes a Pro-Am fiesta that would attract golfers from across the globe.

According to him, the CBN will continue to improve on the tournament, which has attained a high profile status, adding that it has already become a major calendar event of the IBB Golf Club.

Okoroafor, who described sports as a great avenue for building harmonious relations and promoting goodwill in the Nigerian society, revealed that aside the annual All Financial Institutions Football Competition, CBN Lawn Tennis Open Championship and the CBN Junior Open Tournament, the apex bank recently added beach soccer competition to its list of sponsored sports event as part of corporate social responsibility.

He informed that besides the trophies and prizes to be presented to winners on the last day of the event, there will be live music by Onyeka Onwenu and Iyanya during the trophy presentation ceremony.
